Arrhythmia Recognition: The Art of Interpretation
2004 AJN BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD WINNER! An American Journal of Nursing 2004 Book of the Year! Arrhythmia Recognition: The Art of Interpretation uses hundreds of four-color graphics to communicate the complex topics related to arrhythmia recognition. The text focuses on the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the formation and maintenance of complex arrhythmias and on their clinical recognition. Each rhythm strip provides a descriptive table outlining the various abnormalities in a logical, easy-to-follow sequence. In addition, there are analytical narratives outlining what providers should consider when approaching the strip. The tables and analytical narratives are intended to formulate functional interpretative skills to consider when approaching a complex arrhythmia in a clinical situation.
